It appears the huge number of smartphone owners with Samsung branded devices chose to trade those devices in during the iPhone 5s launch. Apple had a huge sales weekend for its iPhone 5S and 5C smartphones, with over 9 million sold. According to electronics recycling company Gazelle, trade-ins of Samsung devices also soared during Apple’s iPhone launch weekend.
